The Philosophy of Marvel’s Daredevil

A look at the philosophy of Marvel’s Daredevil and the main theme of the show: justice.

One of the most critically acclaimed (and fun!) film analysis channels on YouTube, Wisecrack is well known for their take on studying movies and TV shows from a philosophical point of view. Their interpretation of first two seasons of Marvel’s Daredevil is a great insight into themes that the show revolves around. What’s the heart of each and every moral dilemma Matt Murdoch aka Daredevil himself has to face on daily basis? That’s right: justice. As a lawyer, as a catholic and as a vigilante, justice is the cornerstone of every decision Matt resolves to make. Under 14 minutes, folks at Wisecrack manage to put their wits to work and explain the philosophical nuances that the show touches upon. As a result, this video is well worth a watch by any hardcore Daredevil fan.
